Before the kids wake up I usually scan my emails and get lost in the world of pinterest. When I came up on the "permanent marker cups" I will admit, I got a little excited. Unfortunately that does not work. The marker comes right off. The solution, a paint/porcelain pen. They are only about $4 at the craft store and there is an array of colors. I grabbed a few old coffee cups or take a trip to the dollar store and let your imagination run wild.
Make sure you cup is clean.
Choose what you want to put on your cup. I choose one of my favorite quotes from The Notebook, "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul".
Now they say that you are supposed to bake it in your oven, yea, I do not have time for that. I found that if you place them in your dishwasher on the HEATED dry cycle, the marker will "bake" onto the cup. What is even better is that you can leave the house while they are in there! Well there you go. Now go enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea.
